ONTARIO, California –Safariland® congratulates team member, Bobby McGee, for winning the ESP (Enhanced Service Pistol) Division with the fastest overall time of 187.87 at the 2013 IDPA Central California Regional Championship held in Winton, CA on Sunday, June 30.

McGee was faced with 10 technical stages and more than 130 competitors at the Rivers Oaks Range hosted by Mid-Valley Defensive Shooters. “This match had a few stages where you had to draw your pistol off-balance, while seated and also moving,” said McGee. “During this point, it is very critical that you get a high positive grip on the pistol, and the Safariland Model 5197 makes it happen…it rides at that perfect height on the belt. You can’t go wrong with this set-up.”

“Bobby is one of the top-rated IDPA shooters on the west coast, as well as nationally,” said Scott Carnahan, Team Captain and Vice President, Equipment Category Marketing. “Bobby’s dedication to the IDPA sport was instrumental in the development of the new Range Series holster product line. We’re thrilled to have Bobby represent Safariland in this sport as he demonstrates the value of the Safariland and Bianchi products he designs.”

McGee competes in IDPA competitions with a Safariland Model 5197 Open Top Concealment Holster with Belt Loop, Model 332 Range Series Belt, and a prototype of the new Range Series 778 Double Magazine Pouch, expected to be released this fall. McGee uses this equipment for ESP, SSP and CDP divisions. “Shooting competition is our passion and we design and shoot the best gear available,” said McGee.

Safariland Sponsors Upcoming IDPA Carolina Cup

BERRYVILLE, Ark. – The International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) announced that Safariland, the makers of a broad range of law enforcement and security products and services, as well as competition specific holsters, will sponsor the upcoming 2012 Carolina Cup championship.

Safariland is one of the longest running and most respected names in competitive pistol shooting, as well as a major supporter of shooting matches around the country. They join Remington Arms and Smith & Wesson, the Carolina Cup’s two major sponsors, and Comp-Tac, GlockTriggers.com and Trijicon in supporting the championship. As part of their support for the match Safariland will sponsor two of the match’s 16 stages.

“We’re extremely grateful to have Safariland, one of the most widely recognized names in shooting competition, on board as a sponsor of the 2012 Carolina Cup,” said Scott Ruby, sponsor coordinator for the Carolina Cup. “Safariland has always been a strong supporter of the shooting sports, and in particular IDPA. Their generous support of the Carolina Cup is one of the reasons it’s among the best matches in the country.”

“We are very pleased to see the continued growth of IDPA, especially the Carolina Cup, and we wish all the competitors good luck in what is one of IDPA most challenging competitions,” said Scott Carnahan, VP of Safariland and Team Safariland Captain.

“Safariland is proud to be represented in this year’s Carolina Cup by Team Safariland members Bob Vogel, Bobby McGee and Tierani Hendrix who will be competing in the match with their new IDPA rigs.”

The Carolina Cup, one of IDPA’s three major championships, will take place June 14-16 at The Range in Oxford, North Carolina. More than 360 of IDPA’s top shooters are expected to put upwards of 75,000 rounds downrange in pursuit of titles in Custom Defensive Pistol, Enhanced Service Pistol, Stock Service Pistol, Stock Service Revolver and Enhanced Service Revolver, the five divisions in IDPA competition.

Considered by many to be among the most popular matches in IDPA competition, the Carolina Cup is known for its challenging courses of fire that creatively test all of a shooter’s skills. Due to both the match’s popularity and the explosive growth in IDPA membership, the Carolina Cup has been sold out since early March.

Founded in 1996, the International Defensive Pistol Association is the international governing body for IDPA competition which offers shooters a fun, safe, and challenging format to practice and test their gun handling skills through defensive-based scenarios. Today IDPA stands as the fastest growing shooting sport in the United States with over 20,000 members from all 50 states and 54 foreign countries. IDPA’s 321 affiliated clubs offer weekly and monthly matches as well as host major championships.
